Today I’ve rounded up more than 30 of my favorite tote bag sewing patterns. Most of them are free patterns. I have also included a section of bag patterns that you can buy.
If you’ve been a long-time reader then you know that I love to make bags! I still remember the first bag I ever made. My twins were babies (so it was years ago). I remember struggling through those first steps to put the bag together. That overwhelming feeling that someone who is learning to sew sometimes gets.
Then all of a sudden a light bulb “clicked” on and I understood how to put the bag together. After that, it was all downhill from there.
If you’ve not ever made a bag before, I encourage you to give it a try! They are fun to make and are perfect as handmade gifts.
30+ Free Bag Sewing Patterns
Free Bag Patterns from Sewing Blogs
There are so many fabulous sewing blogs out there right now. I can't type up this list without mentioning a few free bag patterns featured on some of my favorite sewing blogs.
Bag Sewing Patterns you can Buy
As much as I love a free tutorial, sometimes a project is more involved and the best format for it is a paid pattern. The benefit of buying a bag pattern is that there are usually more detailed instructions and more photos. Since I'm a HUGE fan of the Maker movement, I'm always happy to spend a few dollars to support a fellow maker.
